NICU Graduation

Bringing your baby home from the hospital is something you look forward to from the moment you find out you’re expecting. That picture perfect expectation of coming home WITH your baby. Having a baby in the NICU makes you feel many things, one of which is robbed. If you’ve been there, you get me on this.

Graduation from the NICU is major for families. The moment you always wanted and waited for, the first time you get to finally leave the hospital WITH your baby. This is huge!
I am so overjoyed to be able to give the families of the NICU the Graduation celebration they deserve with The Superhero Project- Non Profit Foundation Graduation initiative launched this month to Two hospitals!

Amanda Duffy

My name is Amanda Duffy and I am a Registered Nurse, Superhero Project board member and proud NICU mom of two beautiful Girls, Ella and Ava .

I became extremely passionate about supporting babies and families in the NICU in 2018 when our first daughter made her unexpected early arrival at 34 weeks due to preeclampsia. While I spent several days in the hospital recovering from delivery complications I received a care package with a hand written note from Kelly, founder of the Superhero Project & NICU mom offering love and support. From that moment forward I knew this was where I needed to be and started working on bringing awareness to the NICU. One year later we welcomed our second baby girl Ava who was born at 36 weeks due to Placenta Abruption.

 I understand first hand the stressors that come along with leaving your baby in the NICU and the overwhelming feeling of accomplishment when you find out you baby is finally coming home. This major milestone is the moment every family waits for and deserves to be celebrated for the amazing accomplishment that it is. My hope is that every family feels the love and support for their NICU Superhero the same way I feel for mine when they receive this hand made graduation day care package on discharge day!

Thank You!

President Container group

We are so grateful for President Container Group & their PCG cares program for their commitment to helping fund our BEAUTIFUL NICU Graduation Day boxes. This amazing company donated 500 boxes that will be filled for 500 needy families. Take a peek at this incredible company who is ensuring that NICU families celebrate the day they get to bring their baby home.

We are thankful to Rich Goldberg, VP of the container group for supporting The Superhero Project and the families we serve.

“His grandson Emerson spent 70 days in a newborn intensive care unit (NICU) when he was born. In those difficult days, his family found out about the Superhero Project, which supports families of NICU babies across the country during their hospital stays.

“They wanted to have a NICU graduation system where as the babies leave the NICU, the parents would get a swaddler, a blanket, a little graduation hat, all those things, and they wanted to put it in a gift box. So, immediately when they showed me their idea, I brought it to Larry, and it’s right up the alley for PCG Cares,” said Goldberg.

That’s what inspired them to donate 500 boxes to the Superhero Project.

“We need to give back. The corrugated industry has been very good to us, to the family, to our community. Now, it’s time for us to give back and try to help out wherever we can,” said Grossbard.”

NICu graduation stories

Cameron sobieski

Cameron was born at 32 weeks for unknown reasons. He is now 14 months adjusted! He was trying to walk but is still a little scared. He spent 16 days in the nicu and his nurses were amazing every step of the way!


Their parents have been guests at our gala for some time, just supporting a local cause and having a great time at a fun event. Little did they know they would be spending time in the NICU and having to leave their babies behind.
That’s the crazy thing about this life. We just never know what hand we are being dealt. 1:10 families will walk these hallways. We are proud to be there every step of the way.
We are so happy to help welcome their superheroes home as they pose with our official NICU graduation signage!

We ❤️ getting those NICU graduation pictures. Congrats to Anjanay and his parents on such a special day!

The Superhero Project helps so many families when they need extra support and kindness. The ability to see Jack and Colin on the Angel Eye Camera made us feel close to them when they were in Abington’s NICU.
